How to Install XBMC PVR Xvba for AMD/Nvidia/Intel GPUs
Hey guys,

I'm new here - greetings to the xbmc community - and I'm no native speaker ... means who ever finds mistakes can keep them. ;-)

Not sure if it was already discussed here, but as I already saw some threads with same/similar topics:

I just set up ubuntu 13.04 with fglrx (sticked to ubuntu ppa version 12.9, since 13.6b was laggy) and xbmc-xvba following this guide (thx wsnipex, great work!!!) and stumbled into issues with hdmi passthrough.

Starting XBMC via unity desktop session worked fine, I got all the HDMI audio output devices listed, passthrough was working. Swichting to XBMC standalone mode all HDMI audio output devices went gone and passthrough output device read "Failed to initialize audio device".

As I didn't want to deinstall and lose pulseaudio for the desktop session, I took a look in how and when pulseaudio is being initialized and learned that upstart is doing this job - at least for Ubuntu 13.04. Checking the respective upstart script /etc/init/pulseaudio.conf, it read:

Code:
# uncomment the 'start on' to start pulseaudio in system mode
# (enables the pulseaudio init script - requires that users be in the
# pulse-access group):

I did both and got my XBMC standalone passthrough issues fixed :-)

1. Edit upstart configuration file for pulseaudio:
Code:
sudo nano /etc/init/pulseaudio.conf
2. Search for follwoing line:
Code:
#start on runlevel [2345]
and change it to:
Code:
start on runlevel [2345]
3. Assuming xbmc as user, add it to group pulse-access:
Code:
sudo adduser xbmc pulse-access

Even though it does seem trivial, it took me long hours to get the trick (newbie). Still, I hope it might also help others. :-)

BTW: Maybe someone can find a way that does not change the default behaviour of how pulseaudio is being invoked (per-session mode over system mode)?
seems AMD is having a look at the GL interop feature you wanted for radeon vdpau.

Intel Core i5-11500, ASRock B560M-ITX/ac, 240GB SSD + 4TB  Western Digital Blue, Arch Linux, mythtv 31+fixes + TBS 6205 QUAD FREEVIEW DVB-T2
 
Hehe, let's see when the stubs are filled :-)

But that is looking good.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
I was wondering if anybody here could help me with my xorg.conf

When I went from a precise to quantal install (with a later catalyst version) my xorg.conf I had used previously caused tearing in xbmc. So I created the new xorg.conf with the usual sudo aticonfig --initial -f and sudo aticonfig --sync-vsync=on. This solved the tearing problem but now if I switch my monitor off either from the mains or on the switch on the front or it times out from the xbmc screensaver than I never recover it (screen remains black). I have to ctl alt F1 and kill xbmc then ctl alt F7. Currently using only screendim from within xbmc but often use the desktop as well. If i switch off monitor whilst in the desktop then turn back on it is somehow half the resolution but screen size is the same (in other words some of the open windows are now half off the screen)

My current setup is with Lubuntu quantal minimal install, wsnipex/xbmc-xvba-frodo, ATI HD6450.
My monitor is connected with the DVI output. My receiver is connected to the HDMI output.
Apart from the black screen/resolution problem after turning off the monitor my current xorg.conf works.
I have tried various alterations which either result in tearing or no sound.
Ideally I want the gpu doing as little work as possible so want to avoid sending a picture via the hdmi, just sound. Any help would be appreciated.

This xorg.conf works without the black screen problem but involves (I think) sending an image to the receiver which is stressing the gpu more (tell me if I'm wrong!) and it struggles enough with HD video on my 2560x1600 monitor. The first HD video sometimes plays without problem but if stopped all videos afterwards are garbled.
Is there a way of mixing the two so that only audio is sent via hdmi and yet the xorg.conf has enough info so the display is not confused between the two outputs (dvi and hdmi)?

So the first xorg.conf works fine apart from blank screen issue if monitor is turned off in anyway. The above xorg.conf solves this problem but causes garbled video playback. If anyone could help I'd be very grateful!
Hello everyone,
My XMBC crashes everytime and I have no clue what's the problem. When I emerge it with vaapi it crashes....without vaapi crashes. The only way to recover from crash is a system reboot. I'm using fglrx. I can't make it even halfway through a movie. I'm using fglrx
13.8 beta 2 amd propertority driver.

logs deleted.
please use pastebin or xbmclogs for posting logs.
Wrong thread. This thread is for XVBA on amd gpus. The whole thread was only made, to celebrate that we have removed the xvba-va-driver 2 years ago ...

So, that it is buggy and crashes like hell, we know since the beginning, you just proofed that nothing changed.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.

  • Please start with reading the first post in this thread.
  • Xbmc trunk does not support XvBA, which you want if you want to use Xbmc with fglrx, the reason for this: see below.
  • fglrx vdpau is broken, only AMD can fix this. Don't use it.
  • XvBA in fglrx 13.8 is broken, only AMD can fix this. Don't use it.
  • Actually, XvBA in all fglrx versions in portage are broken, except one, only AMD can fix this.
  • fglrx 13.6 beta mostly works. but not everything, like DTS-HD, mpeg2, etc.. But it's as good as it gets, only AMD can fix this.
  • As xbmc trunk doesn't work, you'll need a custom ebuild that uses fernetmentas sources, as described it the first post. Here's a sample of media-tv/xbmc-fernetmenta-9999.ebuild, might need manual updates :

To resolve the issues with support for AMD chipsets in Xbmc you can:
  1. Mail AMD every day and ask them to update the fglrx driver with working XvBA support in linux
  2. Contribute to the radeon open source driver to support XvBA. Lots and lots of work remains.
    Update: Actually, there been some breakthroughs here. Stay tuned, as this may turn out pretty well.
  3. Buy something else than AMD until either AMD goes away or fixes the driver.
    Impressive what a few lines of code can change.

To resolve the issues with support for AMD chipsets in Xbmc you can:
  1. Mail AMD every day and ask them to update the fglrx driver with working XvBA support in linux
  2. Contribute to the radeon open source driver to support XvBA. Lots and lots of work remains.
  3. Buy something else than AMD until either AMD goes away or fixes the driver.
Thanks for the input. I havent read through the thread much less the first post. I will and see what I can do and share my results with fellow users.

Take care to build with internal ffmpeg and without pulseaudio. Btw. this is a completely unofficial ebuild. The only thing we provide, that has "some kind of support" is the ubuntu ppa.
First decide what functions / features you expect from a system. Then decide for the hardware. Don't waste your money on crap.
I used the new ebuild in git xbmc-fernetmenta-9999 git(well about 2 months newer than the one from gentoo bugzilla) and I see very noticeable improvements in the playback. My anime's playback more smoothly than vaapi!!!!!
Anime is most of the time hi10p. But yes, we have a multithreading patch especially for anime in there - in short: all cpus are used.

I'm getting high memory leaks? Any suggestions?
If you use 13.8 fglrx - that is expected ...
